Flowing capes, futuristic suits of armor, yellow-maned gods, and the occasional not so jolly green giant. Welcome to the wonderful Marvel Universe where creativity flourishes and the denotation of beauty is… well, a work in progress.
Shea has been used for centuries in Africa in many applications; for its therapeutic and moisturizing properties, in various traditional ceremonies, and as a food source. It has a well established use as skin ointment for its anti-inflammatory properties, and its ability to help the skin heal and retain moisture. In some traditional weddings, it is used to improve the bride's skin tone and elasticity months before the ceremony. Some regions also eat the shea fruit which is high in Vitamin C, and reportedly tastes like plain yogurt.
